Well, I started this crazy journey into consulting because of my years of implementing solutions for the manufacturing companies I worked for through the mid 80’s and early 90’s. I love finding the right solution for the challenges at hand. I have been with the Syspro product exclusively since 1996, implementing, installing, supporting, and project managing.
I have experience in Make to Order, Make to Stock, Distribution & Supply Chain, Engineer to Order and Process Manufacturing. The industries I have worked in vary; Semi-Conductor, Food and Beverage (lots of chocolate), Farm Equipment, Ingredients Manufacturing, Medical and Pharma.

Originally from the UK Richard worked as a programmer and analyst with various Real-Time control systems in the aviation and Nuclear control industries.
In the US he originally worked for DuPont in their Engineering Department on various Nuclear and Industrial control projects before being responsible for quality and standards on the central control systems for Bay Area Rapid Transit in California.
From this work he started his own business working on software standards and documentation compliance, numbering many Fortune 100 and Government Agencies as customers.
After a successful partnership with Oracle, providing tools to their consulting teams he moved on to several startups related to early efforts at mobile video and social networking.
He first became involved with Syspro as a consultant in 1999 and developed expertise over time in providing extensions, add-ons and integration bridges which lead to fully concentrating on this practice to the current day.
I have been in the Distribution and Logistics industry for over twenty years, building and managing teams at all levels of warehouse distribution and logistics. I have management experience in Food Service Distribution and Manufacturing as well as Wholesale/Retail Distribution. My strength is in creating processes that will streamline operations, creating improved efficiencies, tighter inventory control and then teaching those processes to the entire team. I believe that a strong operations team, delivering the best customer service, is essential to the growth of a company.
I have designed warehouse layouts from the ground up; and have bin-located existing structures, always with increased efficiencies as the end result. As a member of the Warehousing Education and Research Council of Northern California, I like to take an educational approach to supply chain leadership working to create an atmosphere of executional awareness and customer focus while keeping operations flexible, scalable, responsive and easily replicated.
